    Summary

    "You remember, I told you about my grandparents’ farmhouse up near Harrogate, spent a couple of summers there as a boy. Lovely country.”

    “You said, yeah.”

    “Well, it - the house, that is - stayed in the family after the old folks passed away. My parents’re always saying they’d ideally like to move there and leave me the York house in due course, but the place needs some serious tender loving care before then. Anyway, I’ve been thinking my Mum probably wouldn’t mind if I went up there for a couple days, did a bit of dusting and weeding. Only a bit, mind.” Richard chuckles and falls silent for a minute. “So, er… how’s that sound for a getaway?”

    Thomas and Richard form a connection during the royal visit and spend one night together. Letters and phone calls follow, but like any pair of new lovers, they hanker for a little privacy. The Ellises' farmhouse in the Yorkshire countryside proves just the ticket.

    Summary

    Fidelity to a cause is easy as long as you believe most of what they're doing is right. Fidelity to yourself is a lot harder, because it's easy just to see your life as a series of failures rather than a series of successful recoveries from failures. Learning something from each of them.

    Clint Barton has had very few precious things to feel that strongly about, but everyone has to grow sometimes. Like most of his life though, it's not exactly a straight line or an easy recovery.

    Summary

    Bandits came for Lalasa’s family and burned the whole farm out, except for her, because she had been at the river washing clothes. Lalasa did not miss her father or her brothers for all the long years of her life, which should tell you something about her.

    She cried for them anyway, and that should tell you something too.

    --

    Retelling of Page and Squire from Lalasa's POV.

    Summary

    In which temptations are accomplished, grand romantic gestures are made, and two ineffable co-stars only take four seasons of an award-winning television program to realize they’re on their own side (at last, at last.)

    Summary

    Bertie goes to a rather rummy sort of club, the last place one would expect to find one's brilliant valet. What follows is more rummy stuff, lots of drinking, much too much smoking, and some other unmentionable things.
